Defects are important tools in our understanding of quantum field theories.
In this short meeting we want to bring together experts whose research involves QFTs with defects and boundaries. The focus is on topics with a connection to two-dimensional conformal quantum field theory and to topological quantum field theories, since for these two classes of theories a precise mathematical underpinning exists.
